The all-season, ultra-high performance tire features a special silica compound combining summer levels of wet and dry performance with strong cold weather and light snow capability, Kenda said. It features a five rib asymmetric pattern with optimized footprints that provide excellent wear and 3D siping to assist with snow traction while maximizing dry handling performance. Four large circumferential grooves give the tire great hydroplaning resistance and wet traction performance and a rim flange protector helps shield the wheel from curb damage, the tiremaker said.

“The UHP market is one of the largest niche markets for our dealers and distributors in North America,” said Jimmy Yang, president of Kenda Tires. “The KR400 is a cutting-edge UHP product that showcases the capability of Kenda’s North American Technical Center and Engineering team.”
